“Remember Me”

Whenever I read Airforums and wish to comment, I sign in and check “Remember Me”. The next time I wish to comment on a post, I am not remembered. Point being I can read posts all day long that are sent to my email (so Airforums knows who I am), but I have to sign in every session to make a comment. Seems as “Remember Me” has a memory issue?

I log in exclusively from my PC which is heavily restricted by my anti-virus software and cookie blockers. Sometimes I have problems until I loosen restrictions on site I trust.

What type of computer/device/OS are you using, and what Internet browser? If you are shutting it down in between each "session" it may be deleting cookies for you. The "Remember Me" function operates only if the AirForums cookie survives your shut-down and re-boot IMO.

We clean the Internet cache, erase all history, and delete cookies as often as possible [multiple times per session], and have to click the "Remember Me" box each time we log in.

A small price to pay to protect our privacy.

Good luck,

Peter

I stay logged in.
I'm using a desktop Mac, Safari browser, and allow cookies.
Periodically, I'll look through the cookies and delete the ones I don't recognize.
Usually hundreds.
Cookies aren't necessarily bad, since they store little nuggets of information, like icons, logos, and sign in's.
Or delete all and re-sign in on all the sites.

Much safer and less time-consuming IMO. Even the sites you trust share tracking information about you with who-knows-how-many-other sites?



No thanks!

YMMV

Sadly, that horse left the barn years ago. If you use Amazon, Google, or YouTube, you're already being tracked everywhere.
I go through my devices and deny permissions to the camera and microphone, when possible.
Even this site, if you look at the address bar says, "Not Secure".
I don't think any forums are secure.

You will need to go in to your stored passwords area, depending on what version of IOS you're using, and tell it to remember your login here. At some point in the past, you probably clicked "never remember" for this site.
You may also have private browsing enabled, which will automatically not save cookies or passwords.
